Today marks the 6th anniversary of the Tōhoku earthquake and subsequent tsunami + nuclear disaster at Fukushima. The world’s thoughts and prayers were with Japan through that unimaginably difficult time. Asahi Shimbun reports six years later that 34,000 people in the region are still living in makeshift housing, despite steady infrastructure reconstruction efforts. Our sincere thoughts go out to those affected by the disasters.
